you were happy to do that so close to an election when some might say politically that wasn't the best thing to do. >> this is much more important than any election, piers. this is the livelihood of the people in my state when the president does this evenings that deserve praise, i will give him praise. when the president does things that deserve scorn, i will give him scorn. people know that about me. i am not going to play politics with this issue. this is so much bigger than an election. this is the livelihood of the people of my state. people expect me to get the job done. when they ask me a question, i give an honest answer. how has the president been on this? he's been great. >> this killed ambassador christopher stevens, the country's terrorism chief now says it was a terrorist attack. >> clearly the death of ambassador christopher stevens continues to reverberate and the truth or otherwise of the circumstances leading up to his death seem to be pretty vague to put it mildly. where do you think we are with this? >> well, let me tell you what's not vague and that is five days aft
of the lgbt community? have you seen that trend and what was the turning point? >> elections have consequences. i'm going to quote a paraphrase, former chairman of the rnc, haley barbour said, purity is the enemy of victory. and what he was getting at is something we have been saying for quite a while. let's win on the corollaries that we agree upon. we agree upon economic freedom, we agree upon strong national security. we agree upon the core conservative tenets of individual liberty and individual responsibility. let's not isolate or separate fellow americans because of something like their sexual orientation. >> let me ask you this, then -- >> yeah. >> why not do the right thing? when does winning an election supersede doing the right thing? why didn't doing the right thing have more importance than winning elections? >> it's principle and pragmatism. it's a combination of the two. let's start with principle. the first three republicans on the r.m.a., the respect for marriage act. the chairman was the first, the three members gave their word to log cabin republicans to be co-sponsors. long
say more things are on the table than were before the election. the pessimist would say yeah, but there still isn't the substance of an agreement. >> the mechanics, i mean, what we have -- on the obama side, you have an election that pretty much, you know, they took as a mandate, if you will, where, you know, the very issue of taxes was sort of legislative, and the americans basically said they agreed with the president, saying that taxes need to rise on the wealthy. and then you have the right wing of the republican party who won also by wide margins in many deeply conservative districts. and they think they have a mandate. so in a way, it's like the two mandates are canceling each other out. they each think that they are -- and that is why we're frozen. i don't know if it's been that way -- i don't know if the mechanics have been such that it has been so polarized to the point where it's been paralyzing. >> where they feel like they've each won. >> it doesn't baffle me, it sort of angers me is that the conservative republicans who won by overwhelming margins in their distri
's very clear now, mr. president, that the speaker's number one goal is to get elected speaker on january 3rd. the house is not even here. he's told me he'll give them two days to get back here, 48 hours, not two days, 48 hours. they don't even have enough of the leadership here to meet to talk about it. they've done it with conference calls. people are spread all over this country because the speaker is basically waiting for january 3rd. now, the president campaigned on raising taxes on people making more than $250 thou,000 a year. the bush tax cut will expire at the end of this year. obama was elected with a surplus of about three million votes. he won the election. he campaigned on this issue. again, the speaker can't take yes for an answer. the president has presented to him something that would prevent us from going over the cliff. it was response to something that the speaker gave them himself but i guess with the dysfunctional republican caucus in the house, even the speaker can't tell what they are going to do because he backed off even his own proposal. the house, we hear so ofte
election, barack obama being re-elected not withstanding some significant economic concerns going into the beginning of 2012, or a year ago at the end of 2011, it was clear the president would have an uphill battle. and three things struck me as interesting. super packs, the billions raised to reshape voter thinking, and particularly senate and house races, you saw a real impact -- >> in our region. >> absolutely in our region. and that was the first thing that struck me, and the second was turnout. i was among those that believed the president would get 95 or 96% of the african-american vote, and it turned out to be the same. and the same with young voters. and nobody expected the turnout to be the same with young voters. so turnout was a big point in that regard. and lastly, the romney campaign, which was supposed to revolutionize the way politics were done, and the enormous amount of money he was able to raise and he was running for president for all intents and purposes for five years, and on election night it was one tremendous letdown for the governor and all of his supporte
morning, d.c. dark there now, but waky, waky our elected leaders. you have only two days ahead of you before that fiscal cliff deadline. hope you're well rested and fed and dugout from the snow storm yesterday because the clock is ticking down on 2012 and to that deline for avoiding the fiscal cliff, but after weeks of negotiations, patience is running short. here's president obama after his meeting with top political leaders on friday. >> the american people are watching what we do here. obviously, their patience is already thin. this is deja vu all over again. america wonders why it is in this town for some reason you can't get stuff done in an organized timetable. why everything always has to wait until last minute. well, we're now at the last minute. the american people are not going to have any patience for a politically self-inflicted wound to our economy. >> and he apparently wasn't kidding. we put out a call for our cnn ireporters to send us their messages to washington and, yes, we got a ton of responses. quite a few of you were frustrate would the lack of action in washingto
and what was the turning point? >> elections have consequences. i'm going to quote a paraphrase, former chairman of the rnc, haley barbour said, purity is the enemy of victory. and what he was getting at is something we have been saying for quite a while. let's win on the corollaries that we agree upon. we agree upon economic freedom, strong national security. we agree upon the core conservative tenets of individual liberty and individual responsibility. let's not isolate or separate fellow americans because of something like their sexual orientation. >> let me ask you this, then -- >> yeah. >> why not do the right thing? when does winning an election supersede doing the right thing? >> it's principle and pragmatism. it's a combination of the two. let's start with principle. the first three republicans on the r.m.a., the respect for marriage act. the second was richard hanna of new york. long story short is that it's okay, the water's fine, come on in. stand on your principle because i know there's a number of house and senate members that should be on this bill that are not on this bil

is a horrible thing that people can spend and waste this amount of money on elections. think of all the people that could be benefit -- could benefit from that money. >> there have been two elections since i've been in america. there have been two elections where one party has had far more financial power than the other. one was here in california with meg whitman, and one was nationally. romney clearly had more money than obama for most of that campaign, and in both cases, the one with the most money lost. >> isn't that great? >> what does that tell you about the american people? >> the people are getting smarter. they're going, i don't like all this amount of money spent on this election. campaign finance reform is very important, and i hope somebody does something about it. you should have a given amount, equal amount, equal air time, and that's it. that idea of corporations being people. no, no, it's not -- this is a country of, by, and for the people, not of, by, and for the corporation. you know, it's like -- because i'm so against gmos, the modified food, and i'm so against lobbying by
